Where Has My Country Gone?
I can hear the jackboots again
Although I'm not in Nazi Germany
And I'm not in Red China
These are echos in my Home-Land
They're every value un-American
A spit in the face to the authors of the Constitution!
These are ugly days, ugly times, ugly words
From lies and disinformation ignorance is born
Can you smell the hatred bring bred from fear?
And dont you understand that when you give your rights away
There is no freedom left to die for?
Where has my country gone?!?!
Can't see the similarities?
Can't disern reality?
'Cause when you're awake you're still dreaming!
Dreaming in the mall and in the shops of 5th Avenue
In endless choices and fashion accessories
Drowning euphoria in a sea of gluttony
Delve in deep now - there drugs are legal
Delve in deep now - these drugs they are even encouraged - advertised!
Delve in deep now - no need to fear global corporations
Delve in deep now - let the pain, blood, and tears of sweatshop workers lull you to sleep...
Or you can look to the alternative - turn from the conservative
The backward fascist-like prospects - that saves us by enslaving us!
Strip our rights away - with no guaruntee of improved Homeland Security
Who's gaining from these policies?
The American people? Or those looking to abuse their authority?
